Health Insurance

In order to be registered as a student, you must have adequate health insurance. Insurance coverage is not automatically provided. Students have to make arrangements by themselves.

Depending on your country of origin, there are different regulations:

1. Students from countries of the European Union (EU):

  • You can obtain a European health insurance card (EHIC) from the relevant health authority in your home country.
  • After arrival in Germany, present this card to a German state health insurance provider (e.g.TK, AOK, BEK, DAK etc.).
  • The German state health insurance provider will issue documentation confirming that you have health insurance cover in your home country.

 2. Students originating from non-EU countries with which Germany has a social insurance treaty (Iceland, former Yugoslavian states, Norway, Switzerland and Turkey):

  • Please present confirmation of health insurance in your home country (Anspruchsbescheinigung) to a German state health insurance provider (e.g. TK, AOK, BEK, DAK etc.).
  • The German State insurance provider will then issue a document called "Bescheinigung zur Vorlage bei der Hochschule", if your insurance status is sufficient.
  • Please bring this document with you to the enrollment at the Registrar's Office.
  • If the health insurance provider decides that your insurance cover is not adequate, you will need German health insurance cover.



Every student including Erasmus+ exchange students has to pay a Student Services Organization fee / social fee (Studentenwerksbeitrag) and a fee for a basic semester ticket. Accepted exchange students will be informed in detail in their Letter of admission.
